American Angus Association Seeks Summer Interns

The American Angus Association® is now accepting applications from college students who want to explore a career and gain real-world experience at a breed association. The paid internships last approximately 10-12 weeks during Summer 2009. Application deadline is February 1, 2009.

The Association’s communications department offers an internship to junior or senior-level students majoring in agricultural journalism or communications who have an interest in the livestock industry. Animal science students with a strong skill set in writing and editing are also encouraged to apply.

Students interested in the communications internship should have completed course work in news and feature writing, as well as editing and photography. The candidate should have experience with livestock shows. Send a cover letter, resume and writing samples to Shelia Stannard, director of communications & events.

The junior activities department employs a college student to assist the planning and execution of junior Angus shows and leadership events. The intern will work closely with various aspects of event planning. Applicants should be detail-oriented, outgoing, be able to work with all types of people and be a self-starter.
